Misha’s Vineyard Pinot Noir Featured at Chalk

A New Zealand Wine Dinner was presented at Chalk restaurant in Singapore on 3rd November to coincide with the NZ Wine Fair. A range of wonderful New Zealand wines were featured at this dinner which was hosted by Misha on behalf of New Zealand Winegrowers. After our apéritif of a Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, we enjoyed Seafood Bisque with a Central Otago Pinot Gris from the Gibbston sub-region, followed by a Beetroot, Rocket, Orange and Chèvre Salad matched with a Marlborough Pinot Gris. The creamier style Pinot Gris was great with the Bisque but the crisper leaner style exhibited by the Marlborough Gris was perfect with the salad. With the main course of Duck Confit with a Sweet Potato Mash, two wines were presented – Misha’s Vineyard “The High Note” Pinot Noir 2008 along with a 2007 Marlborough Pinot Noir. The evening finished with a Lemon Tart with fresh cream and a lovely sparkling wine from Martinborough. The highlight of the evening was definitely the Duck and Pinot – it’s definitely a food/wine match that’s made in heaven! If in Singapore, please visit Chalk for some relaxed modern European cuisine and make sure you try their Duck Confit! (Chalk is located at 11 Mount Sophia #01-03, Tel:+65 6883 2120)
